Inspired by the Rider Deck, this famous tarot symbol represents the solar aspect of creation. The Sun provides light and warmth to our world, it is not surprising that the Star was anthropomorphized with human like qualities. In my article concerning the Sun Amulet in my Tarot series, I described the concept of countenance is considered. The solar globe is quite literally a ball of fire with no human like qualities, yet we see through out various cultures a human face ascribed to it.
We do this with most things: we place a human face on things we find strange or incomprehensible; in this way we may begin to relate to it in a way we may understand.
A smiling Solar Face beams down upon us giving light and warmth to all who may receive it. A classic image of spring and summer, beach bunnies and those who acknowledge the Sun God of Old. This rendering of the Sun gently smiles upon us from beyond our reach. The twelve rays represent the zodiac and ringed together to complete the Amulet.
